Classical Music Playlist, April 4, 2022


Franz Joseph Haydn spent decades of his career in Hungary, in personal service to the Esterházy family and writing prolifically for small audiences. This included his first Cello Concerto in the early 1760s.

By 1784, Joseph Haydn was in his fifties and of international fame largely due to the publication of his music. And although his last concert tours and symphonies in London were yet to come in the following decade, Haydn was already making important connections with his adoring English fans. The second cello concerto – written twenty years after its second – was premiered by one of England’s greatest cellists, and has been part of the basic repertoire of cellists ever since. You can hear Haydn’s music as your midday masterpiece right here on KXPR at 2 p.m.
